Video Of The Week: Tesla Powerwall

I am obsessed with the Tesla power wall product. We are getting them for the properties we own where we have solar.

This video below explains how the power wall works in combination with solar panels, the grid, and your electrical usage.

I particularly like this screen shot from the Tesla app that shows the power flows between the four systems:

Feature Friday: A Solar Roof

I think the product that blew me away the most this year is the Tesla Solar Roof. The idea that a regular looking roof tile could generate the solar power you need for your home and car is just great. And though I haven’t seen them in person, they look great on the web.

We own Tesla’s cars. We are in line to buy their Powerwalls. And I hope to build our next roof out of their roof tiles.

I love the entire vision. It’s great.
